Andrew KATAY

CEO

Andrew is the CEO of City to City Australia, a church planting and leadership development agency linked to Tim Keller and Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York. This role enables him to work across denominational boundaries to be part of seeing a Gospel movement take hold of cities across Australia, which is a driving passion for Andrew.

Andrew is also the Senior Minister of Christ Church Inner West, a multi-site church in Sydney's Inner West, where he commenced over ten years ago. He has considerable experience in University ministries and has served as Chaplain to Sydney University.

He is married to Catriona and they have three adult and almost adult children. The things that animate Andrew are sharing the Gospel, seeing God’s grace at work in the community of the Church as well as in the wider community through cultural renewal, and when he has time, a decent game of golf.

CHRIS SWANN

Director of training

Chris loves being the Director of Training with City to City Australia. It’s exciting to stand alongside those who serve Christ’s people in leadership — whether they are serving in new or established churches or parachurch ministries. He is passionate about helping them do this authentically — out of the overflow of an increasingly vibrant personal experience of the grace of the Lord Jesus — with humble confidence that all of life belongs to Christ, and with a compelling vision for spiritual renewal and fruitfulness in executing contextually-appropriate strategies that engage and activate others in pursuit of this goal.

Chris has a decade and a half of experience identifying, raising up and equipping Christian leaders in university ministry, local church, chaplaincy, mission agency, communications, and theological education roles. He is particularly stirred by the challenge of helping people grasp and minister out of a vision of the Christian life that takes seriously the power, purpose, and presence of God’s grace. In this vein, his PhD in theology, examined Karl Barth’s use of the language and imagery of discipleship in the context of his late doctrine of sanctification.

Chris lives in Melbourne with his wife Natalie and two kids, where they are part of a local Anglican church in the multicultural and increasingly-secular Inner North.
